What for?
- I want to be able to use this program to its maximum potential, as cheaply as possible. It can use up to 12 hardware threads and can need more than 16gb RAM for some solutions.

Why?
- I want to use Piosolver to improve my understanding of game theory optimal play in no limit hold'em poker. This pc is basically an investment that will hopefully/eventually pay for itself.

Other uses?
- Play multiple tables at once on multiple pokerclients while running other programs (Hold'em manager 2, Firefox, Jetaudio, Soulseek), without lag or overheating.
- Sometimes I like to record and edit video's of my play with Camtasia.
- I'm a casual gamer. I would like to play games like Fallout 4 and GTA 5 smoothly.
- I enjoy watching movies in HD.

Here is what I've selected so far:

could get one of the new r300 refreshes pretty cheap, the 380 is sub $200 iirc but if you want to play gta5 at higher settings you could splash out ~$100 for a 290/390 or $170~ for a 390x
you'll want a 550W+ psu
case is up to you, i usually cheap out on mine but you can decent ones for sub $100

4tb HDD is a bit overkill, could drop comfortably to 1-2gb
same with ssd, 256gb is more than enough
could swap the HSF for this cheaper one; http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cryorig-cpu-cooler-h5ultimate
could also downgrade the CPU to a 4790K and save $80~ and use it towards a better cooler/case combo so you can overclock with lower temps

ps; make sure u get ddr4 memory with that cpu

e; nvm u have

Unless you need space I would go with a large case just for the sake of having more room to work with and flexibility. Pcpartpicker gives you a decent estimate for what sort of power supply you'll need. I would go 200-300 over to ensure you'll never have problems with it. Start shopping for deals for a decent GPU.

Thank you very much. ThumbUp.gif I knew absolutely nothing about this before today.

Updated list

No need to save like 200$, I'll be using this almost every day all day. I'm still playing on a laptop that was 600$ 2 years ago, when I have over 6k in my poker account. embarassed(2).gif

Now I still want a very big monitor, good keyboard & mouse with hotkeys (for autohotkey betsizing) and of course a case that will fit everything and keep it cool. I'll do some research at what's available.

Did some more research and apparantly BX200 SSDs are shit. I choose Samsung 850 EVO 256GB for now. I don't think the capacity will be a problem if I only have 2-3 games installed at a time.
Swapped the 5400rpm 4TB HDD for an 7200rpm 3TB one, because it's cheaper and faster (not sure?)
Swapped Corsair 32 GB DDR4-2133 Vengeance for G.Skill 32 GB DDR4-2400 Ripjaws because it looks better + it's cheaper and faster (not sure?)

Also if anyone sees something else that can be replaced for something better without costing much more, please inform me...

I have a crucial 128gb and with OS + a few games on it I still have a few gbs to spare. 256gb will be more than enough. If you use steam you can also download this tool to easily rotate them out from a second steam folder on the HDD. http://www.stefanjones.ca/steam/

Keyboard/mouse you should get what's most comfortable for you. I'm still using an old deathadder from like 6 or 7 years ago and it works fine, granted the scroll wheel started to play up but a few drops of grape oil on the axle and it works like new. (I wouldn't buy any of the newer Razer products though, the quality has greatly declined over the years). Zowie make pretty good mice too.

As for keyboards you could just buy a $5 logitech/microsoft membrane board then maybe look at getting a mechanical. I'm using a steelseries 6gv2 and have no complaints at all.

I've changed some more things:
Sapphire Radeon R9 390 8GB Nitro Video Card instead of the MSI one.
SeaSonic M12II 850W instead of the be quiet! 750W one.

Now the only thing I can't figure out is:
32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory or 32GB (8 x 4GB) DDR4-3000 Memory? (The latter costs about 50$ more but if it is significantly faster I'll take it)
What case? (Looking to spend around 100$ max)

Update:

Swapped the MSI mobo for an Asrock because I googled and found a lot of problems with msi x99 mobos. This even saved some money, so I picked 8*4 DDR4-3000 RAM. Looks good together too smile.gif

1€ is only like 1,10$ nowadays and 500$ is about 20 hours max of playing for me but I enjoy playing so I don't really mind that much. I'm asking advice on tomshardware atm, some v knowledgeable sickos there. Will update thread again with what I decide to order in the end...

CPU - 5820K is definitely a Great Choice and Please Overclock this CPU to atleast 4.0Ghz

HSF - Great Cooler, I tried it myself and it works great (though the fans will be noisy if you set to max speed). Should be able to help you sustain the 4.0Ghz OC + your prog workload with good temps

MBO - ASRock EX4 is a great mobo but the X99 platform is already Prosumer tier so even with the entry X99A-Sli is great

RAM - Overkill 3.0Ghz RAM, Will last you more than a decade cool.gif

SSD - Samsung EVO 850 is a huge improvement over the 840 series. I would recommend it since I never received any complaints yet from 850 users since release. Don't forget to install the magic software the SSD provided. It boosts the SSD performance somehow.

HDD - Please reconsider getting Hitachi's HDD. Seagate failure rate is pretty high and with a triple platter on the 3TB, I would definitely say a big nono on the risk you're taking for this part. Please reconsider if you can. Getting 2TB x2 is also a better option than a single 3TB. Although you may need to switch/swap drives to store your files (should be much of a issue since you're just going to copy/paste clicking hihi)

GPU - The R9 390 is a great card in your build, If possible, try to squeeze some of your bucks and get the R9 390X variant. Sapphire is the best AMD partner in GPU then Asus/MSi/Gigabyte and XFX.

PSU - Seasonic is pretty much a great brand and well known for it's quality. Price is slightly premium and with the 80+ bronze cert. You should be okay. 850W is more than enough handle full load R9 390 but having extra free watts is better than not having enough power delivery right? hehe

Overall build is great and definitely Prosumer Tier already. The PC should run the program smoothly.

also for the Chasis/Casing. Cooler Master 5 is something you can reconsider getting.

Some more things changed. I think this will be my final decision.

Found a decent monitor for 1440p gaming, found a case, upgraded 390 to 390x, upgraded MoBo to Extreme 6, upgraded SSD to 950 pro, changed RAM, chose a different HDD, upgraded PSU
